Refresh others and Be Refreshed!

A Generous man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed” - Proverbs 11:24 -25

Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. - 2 Corinthians 9:7

God loves a cheerful giver because those who feel pleasure in giving display the glorious grace of His Son. His grace abounds to us in giving because in the act of giving we are being moved toward the image of Christ. Every time we give to a kingdom work, we can know a joy and peace in entrusting ourselves to the grace of our Father and being moved by grace toward the image of His Son. We shall not trade this joy for all the riches in the world.

Pray that we would be a cheerful giver to refresh those others around us. Pray that God would change us by his word. Let's grow in the Lord together and be refreshed! Amen.
